49ers offer refunds to season-ticket holders, say Levi’s Stadium may not host fans in 2020

Jul 8, 2020 at 1:16 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday sent out emails to season-ticket holders informing them of their options for the 2020 season. The team notes that it does not yet have definitive details on what the preseason schedule might look like. It also took the opportunity to communicate the approach to ticket sales at Levi's Stadium for this year.

The team acknowledges that Levi's Stadium may not be able to host fans in a "full or limited capacity" during the upcoming season.

"To ensure the health and safety of our season ticket members, players, coaches, staff, and the greater community and to comply with state and local restrictions, we may not be able to host fans in a full or limited capacity this season," read the email. "Given this uncertainty, season ticket members will have two options for payments made for the upcoming season: (1) credit your 2020 payments to the 2021 season; or (2) request a refund. In the event we have limited capacity at Levi's Stadium this season, tickets will be made available on a game-by-game basis at the season ticket rate. Members electing to credit 2020 payments to the 2021 season will receive preferred access to available tickets."

Those electing to receive refunds will see no negative impact on their account seniority or seat location but will not gain preferred access to ticket sales for the upcoming season, should any seats be made available.

The 49ers and NFL as a whole continue to work out the detail of holding a 2020 season. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the league to reevaluate how fans will experience football this year.

Other NFL teams, like the Baltimore Ravens, have already informed their season-ticket holders of similar options while noting that seating at M&T Bank Stadium will be reduced to a maximum of 14,000 seats per game. That's assuming even that number is permitted under state and local regulations. The situation remains fluid and could change drastically in the weeks and months ahead.

"With ticket demand expected to exceed any availability in 2020, ticket availability is not guaranteed for any member this season," the 49ers noted on the team's official website.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman sat down to speak with reporters on Tuesday. In front of him was an auditorium filled with empty seats, and a single video screen in the middle of them. That screen featured the media, like myself (they'll let anyone in there these days), sitting comfortably in our homes, speaking to the veteran defender virtually via Zoom video conference software. Sherman conducted the entire interview with a face covering on — just one of several precautions in place at the 49ers facility to ensure the safety of players, staff, and their families. It's a reminder of how different the upcoming NFL season will be, a reminder of the new normal amidst a pandemic. It's an adjustment. Sherman knows

Continuity. Cornerback Richard Sherman expects that to be the San Francisco 49ers' biggest advantage heading into an unprecedented and unpredictable season. NFL teams haven't had proper offseasons due to the coronavirus pandemic. When squads gather on the practice field during training camp, it will be their first time doing so since last season. Yes, teams have been working hard this offseason. That work has been conducted virtually, though. Players have been training on their own, save a few player-organized practices that ended due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests. Sherman expects the 49ers' continuity to help the team overcome the strangeness of this offseason, and fuel a quest to return to the Super Bowl. "This year, we
